Palm and Verizon Announce the Pre and Pixi Plus
Today Palm announced an update to the Pre and Pixi devices. Changes compared to the original Pre include an updated design, twice the internal memory (16GB of storage) and an included Touchstone-compatible back cover. The Pre Plus also removes the navigation button. Palm also announced the Pixi Plus. It now includes Wi-Fi, which was missing on the Sprint version of the phone. Palm also announced that there will be more back covers for the Pixi. A new application for the Pre and Pixi Plus will make the devices mobile hotspots similar to the Novotal MiFi. It will support up to five other devices over Wi-Fi. Both devices will be available exclusively on the Verizon Wireless network on January 25.

Say what you want, but the Palm Pre is a great phone and Sprint nabbed it with exclusivity (until spring of course)
NOW, Sprint is majorly upsetting me by providing little choice for a power user hungry for new technology. I am so tempted to switch to another carrier to upgrade my...

It is amazing how childish some toy seekers are. Oh...
